MAY 25 - TRW Inc. of Cleveland has beaten out three competitors for a $284.7 million contract to build a network connecting flight simulators around the country.


TRW beat teams led by CACI International Inc. of Arlington, Va., Computer Sciences Corp. of El Segundo, Calif., and Sciences Application International Inc. of San Diego. Each of the teams had won a small contract to develop an architecture for a system that will allow pilots in simulators in different locations to fly with each other in a virtual environment.


The award to TRW was based on the evaluation of those architectures.
Under the five-year contract, TRW will link simulators at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia, Eglin Air Force Base in Florida and Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. More than 50 training sites worldwide eventually will be linked.


"This network of simulators will provide the Air Force increased training hours at a significantly reduced cost and allow for team training long before deployment to a theater of operations," said Michael Papay, TRW's DMT program manager. "As more aircraft and command and control simulators are added to the network, DMT can provide a mission rehearsal capability to support real-world operations."


TRW's team includes CAE Electronics Ltd of Quebec, Ontario; Litton-Tasc Inc. of Chantilly, Va.; Matcom Inc. of Alexandria, Va.; and Sparta Inc. of Laguna Hills, Calif.
